Forum: texts Subject: Downloading all metadata

Is there a way to download all the metadata from a collection in one go?

I have a script that walks a collection to get the individual foo_meta.xml files, but this is a waste of your bandwidth and my programming time.

As an example of this, Gutenberg has their entire collection's metadata at:

http://www.gutenberg.org/feeds/catalog.rdf.bz2

Why do I want this data? I process it to produce useful sub-lists of books related to my pre-1600 re-enactment hobby...
